LONDON (3 March): This spring, Food by National Geographic Traveller (UK) is inviting readers to start plotting their dream weekend away, with its pick of Europe’s destination restaurants.

From Massimo Bottura’s Osteria in Modena to Raymond Blanc’s Le Manoir aux Quat’Saisons in Oxfordshire, the latest edition of this special-issue series pulls together a selection of the continent’s most exciting establishments — high-concept restaurants, often in spectacular locations, that are truly worth basing a short-trip around.

Glen Mutel, editor of Food, said: “Many of us plan weekends away around plays, concerts, opera performances and spa visits. So why not dining? Why not build your weekend around that restaurant you’ve wanted to visit for years?

“Things might be tight for most of us at the moment, but as tough as it is, that shouldn’t stop us dreaming — or even planning. So, check out our pick of Europe’s best restaurants, from Slovenia to Scotland — all exceptional, all distinct and all within easy reach of home.”

Also in this issue, we head to Australia to taste the produce of southwest Victoria’s fertile volcanic terrain; visit Scotland to try Arbroath’s famous smokies; enjoy a family meal among the fjords of remote east Iceland; and sample the hospitality of Oman’s mountainous interior. All this, plus the highlights of Tokyo, Rioja and Brooklyn.

In addition, expect the usual mix of thought-provoking features and easy-to-follow recipes from world-renowned contributors.
